New NY Broadband - Phase 3

Application Information and Resources

The BPO is pleased to announce the launch of Phase 3 of the New NY Broadband Program. The Phase 3 Request for Proposal Guidelines are available here. The Phase 3 Mapping Primer is available here. The BPO will begin accepting applications for broadband funding on the Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) portal starting on June 6, 2017.  Applications must be submitted by August 15, 2017.  

To begin developing your proposals, please review the preliminary Phase 3 Lists of Eligible Census Blocks, provided below in Excel (.xlsx), Shapefile (.shp) and KML/KMZ format.  Please note that these Lists are preliminary and subject to change.  Final Phase 3 Lists of Eligible Census Blocks will be posted on this website in the coming weeks.

Please note, the BPO has removed Census Blocks from the Phase 3 Lists of Eligible
Census Blocks where it has determined that either service meeting the Program’s broadband
speed goals, or a commitment to provide such service, is currently in place. 

If your company currently offers broadband service to all locations in any one or more
Census Blocks identified on these Lists, and would like to challenge their inclusion in Phase 3,
please follow the instructions provided (here).  As noted in the instructions, Challengers must
complete the following affidavit (here) and List of Challenged Census Blocks (here). 
No challenges will be accepted after 4:30pm on April 13, 2017.

The BPO is hosting a bidders conference on May 4, 2017 in Albany, NY to discuss the criteria for Phase 3 of the New NY Broadband Program, and to provide information to applicants on how to participate in the third and final phase of the Program. Please email nysbroadband@esd.ny.gov to request an invitation.
